Former Rep. Clarence Miller, R-Ohio, Dies

LANCASTER, Ohio, Aug. 3 (UPI) — Clarence Miller, who represented Ohio in the U.S. House of Representatives for 26 years, has died at age 93.

He died Tuesday at Fairfield Medical Center, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

Miller was elected to Congress in 1966, during the Vietnam era, and won 12 more terms. In 1992, he lost a Republican primary after being thrown into the same district with Rep. Bob McEwen, who went on to lose the general election to a future governor, Ted Strickland.

An electrical engineer for Columbia Gas, Miller held several patents. He served as mayor of Lancaster, a small city in southern Ohio, from 1963 to 1967.

In Congress, Miller was known as a fiscal conservative who wanted to cut all spending bills by 5 percent. During the Gulf War in 1991, he was the only member of Congress with a grandson serving in the Middle East.

“For more than 25 years, Clarence served the state of Ohio with great honor in the U.S. House of Representatives,” U.S. Rep. Steve Austria, R-Ohio, said. “His impact on Lancaster even after his time in Congress has been irreplaceable, and he will be deeply missed.”

Miller’s wife, Helen, died in 1987. He is survived by a son and daughter, five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.
